I'll be seeing JP Thursday night at the Karma Cafe here in Calgary. It's nice venue for him, small and close in. He was at the same place a few months back and I had the pleasure of talking with him at length (okay, hogging his time)during a break. Genuinely nice guy. One of his songs (Another Morning) is doing fairly well, and he was quite moved at the positive responses he's been getting from people. I remember this from our conversation- "There's something true in all of my songs."
And yes oh yes, the man can play.
